When it comes to plastic surgery in general, and rhinoplasty in particular, there is so much information out there, it can sometimes be hard to tell fact from fiction. In fact, some myths are so widespread and well entrenched that you’d be forgiven for believing they were true.

Myth 1: Nose Jobs are Easy to Spot!

While some rhinoplasty can be drastic, there are thousands of procedures that make subtle internal changes to nasal passages or tweak the appearance just slightly. Not every nose job has to make you look as different as night and day - unless you want to! It is up to you and your cosmetic surgeon to decide on a look that’s suited to you and mutually agree on the right level of change or work.

Myth 2: Rhinoplasty is Only About Changing How You Look!

On the contrary, rhinoplasty has its roots in reconstructive plastic surgery. People with nasal obstructions that impair breathing and normal functioning of the nose benefit from having this surgery done to correct blockages, open up passages, and so on. This kind of work is called a functional rhinoplasty since the intent is to improve function and is not about cosmetic changes.

Myth 3: You can Pick THE Perfect Nose You Saw on a Celebrity.

This is both true and false. Yes, you might be able to get the same kind of nose as a celebrity, but this depends on your own facial and nasal structure. The cosmetic surgeon will need to evaluate whether or not this shape will be suitable for your face and if it can be done, given the existing bone structure. But it isn’t a given that you can get any nose you like, there are medical considerations around whether or not that shape will allow normal nasal function for you.

The second reason this is a myth is that the perfect nose for someone else might not even be the best aesthetic choice for you. Go with a nose that is in proportion to the rest of your face and goes with your facial features instead.

Myth 4: Rhinoplasty Doesn’t Last

The effects of rhinoplasty are long-lasting and for most people can last a lifetime! That said, if you opt for revision surgery to make small tweaks or changes to the look from time to time, that is something you could do. But on its own, a properly done nose job does not need a do-over or update.

Myth 5: It is Painful

Rhinoplasty is done under anesthesia or sedation so you won’t feel a thing during the actual procedure. There may be some swelling and bruising or discomfort to cope with during recovery. For this, you can take NSAIDs and follow the surgeon’s after-care tips to minimize discomfort and aid healing.

Myth 6: Any Plastic Surgeon Can Perform a Rhinoplasty

Facial cosmetic surgery is a very specialized area of work. Due to the very technical and precise nature of the procedure, it is important to choose not just any plastic surgeon but someone who has a great track record and extensive experience in facial cosmetic surgery in general and rhinoplasty in particular. In the Toronto area, for instance, a safe and smart choice is Dr Jamil Asaria at Face Toronto.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

At FACE Toronto we are committed to protecting the safety of our patients, staff, and the general public while maintaining our high standard of quality care. As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made changes to our patient care practices in accordance with all provincial and Public Health recommendations. Our team has been working diligently on enhancing our safety protocols to protect the well-being of our patients, team members, and families. We would like to highlight how we are providing a safe environment for you and our team:

  • We will be pre-screening all patients that are scheduled to come into our office for any symptoms of COVID-19. We will ask patients to stay home with symptoms of COVD-19, chronic lung disease, severe asthma, serious heart conditions, and uncontrolled type 1 diabetes. A mandatory Covid-19 consent form must be filled out before arrival to the clinic and temperature checks will be administered upon entering the building.
  • We have implemented a policy for the safety and testing of our staff members including daily screening and temperature checks. We will be maintaining physical distancing as much as possible throughout the office for staff and patients.
  • The timing of patient visits has been adjusted in order to limit the number of people in the office at a given time and to allow for enhanced disinfecting and cleaning protocols we have put in place in between patients.
  • We request that patients come on their own to all appointments unless absolutely necessary. We are not servicing any walk-in patients and not allowing visitors or children to accompany any patient.
  • For your safety all of our staff will be wearing masks when interacting with patients in the office and routine hand-washing is required.
  • We request that you wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, a mask will be provided. Hand sanitation stations will be available upon entering and throughout the office.
  • We are pleased to offer virtual visits as an option for non-urgent appointments. The software we have in place provides appropriate safety and privacy for the interaction.
  • We have increased our in-office cleaning. All areas of patient traffic are regularly cleaned throughout the day. All treatment rooms are cleaned between every patient encounter. All chairs and table tops in the waiting room as well as treatment rooms will be wiped down between patients, including counters, keyboards and door handles. Our credit/debit card terminal will be disinfected after each use. We have also enhanced the air filtration quality in our space to provide patients with surgically clean air.
